My Favorite Things

Males in my house who pee INTO the toilet
Dad's evening off if the babies don't spoil it
Children who cross themselves in church and sing
These are a few of my favorite things

Reb. Mary goaded into righteous furies
When Gauntlets posts; when my 3-yr-old hurries
Nursing the babe and no bell or phone rings
These are a few of my favorite things

When the cat pukes
When the milk spills
Months when I don't floss
I try to forget fav'rite things and recall the
Theology of the cross

When my big girl wants to read to the others
When Little Girl doesn't torment her brothers
When someone tells me there's nothing to bring
These are a few of my favorite things

Brilliant!

Yes, well done! ...ummmm, except for the part about not flossing. Regardless of all the other theories you might have heard, that is the "unforgivable sin." There's really no excuse (or pardon) for not flossing. ;-)

Not flushing is worse.

D'oh! The tooth doc is at large. My dentist tells me failure to floss is a completely normal symptom of motherhood. :D

Father Rick, LOL!

It strikes me that "flush" and "floss" would be the same word in Hebrew anyway, leaving us with a classic spurious alternative.
